A little more information about what you can expect for your first visit.
During your first initial appointment your Osteopath will ask you some important questions regarding your medical history and lifestyle. This information will be used to help them to determine an accurate diagnosis of the problem. We would then ask to have a look at the affected area and may carry out some tests to help us to investigate the problem and form a diagnosis. This diagnosis will then be discussed with you before we commence treatment. Amee uses a wide range of manual techniques, including physical manipulation, soft and deep tissue massage, stretching and exercise rehabilitation in order to help the body in its healing process.
Once treatment is complete for that session, Amee will advise you of what to do at home as sometimes you can feel some soreness post treatment which can be completely normal. You will also be given a prognosis and rough guide of how many sessions will be required to fully resolve the issue to its maximum capability.
The initial consultation is approximately 45 minutes but can vary from person to person depending on the complications of their medical history.
Follow up treatments are approximately 30 minutes duration.
Many of Amees patients return for ‘maintenance’ treatment highly recommended by her and most other Osteopaths as a preventative type treatment to prevent further relapses going forwards.
